Two years ago, I participated in the 31 Days Blogging Challenge with a series for Special Needs Families. It was called “31 Days of Supporting the Special Needs Family: Opening Dialogue, Building Bridges, Creating Community.”

A few months ago, I again felt the burden to open up this blogging space for the support and encouragement of special needs families, especially as my family is now two years post-diagnosis with our own special needs story.


This series is going to speak to the broad range of “special needs” that families have. I especially want to give more credence to families who might face medical challenges, as well as continuing to share hope and encouragement to those dealing with invisible disabilities, mental illness, and other special needs.
